an immediate antedote. bill: syria depend on money from its oil exports. 9% of which are purchased by europe. president bashar al-asaad ruled for 12 years after assuming the presidency under questionable circumstances can argue. regime allies aloud him to take office at 32 years old. he was approved by a voter referendum of yes or no. martha: he rarely appears in public. january 11 he addressed a public rally in the capital city of damascus. after that march 27 he visited a former rebel stronghold to allegedly inspect the conditions there. his most recent appearance on june 3, he spoke before syria's parliament. we covered it here on fox. in that speech he denied reports his government massacred rebel fighters and civilians and he accused foreign terrorists of plotting to destroy his country. bill: . the government moving defense missiles to turkey. it will be defensive posture only. the western alliance is set to okay those weapons. the patriot missiles not expected to arrive in turkey until next month. martha: let's go to egypt which is also very volatile at the moment. the presidential pa
